Updated November 2019
During a past holiday season, I noticed that a post in the Music Teachers Facebook group was getting a lot of attention. Teacher Krista Reeder invited everyone to take part in a game of “guess the holiday song” by using only emojis to depict the title. A couple of hundred comments later, there ended up being quite a decent list of emoji songs!
Last year, I thought it might be useful to collect them and put them into a worksheet format for students in class… and this year, I thought we’d make a different version of the worksheet that isn’t Christmas specific and can be suited for all kinds of general holiday songs.
I hope you like this new edition and find it useful for your music classroom, and I hope your students find this worksheet to be a fun activity!

Tip for those of you with young students
If you have young students that might struggle to answer the questions, you could print out the answer sheet, cut up all the questions and answers and play a game of “match the song to the emojis” (perhaps with just a handful of songs that you are confident they know).
